A friend recently told me that she makes this Churro Popcorn every year at Christmas as a neighbor gift! I had completely forgotten about it! I made it years ago for Cinco De Mayo. It’s one of those ancient recipes lost in the blog archives. I found it, it didn’t even have pictures, ha! So I had to make it, because I do remember it being so good, and had to get some new pictures up! Guys, it’s so so good! So it deserves a place right at the top here!
It’s 100% sweet, 100% indulgent and not healthy in the slightest. But sometimes you indulge a little. Enjoy it. And have a green smoothie in the morning 😉 It’s all about balance friends. I hope you enjoy the treats you love most this holiday season, without the guilt. I think this might be one of them!
You can use air popped popcorn, or pop it in the whirly pop — that’s what we have and I always use! After that, it’s just a matter of melting some butta, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt together. Pour it over the popcorn and let it bake for 30 minutes and voila! So good. Your house will smell so good too!
1/2cup unpopped popcorn kernels (about 12 cups popped)
